I know what you might be thinking: Mangoes are orange-yellow, so why isn't this juice? I totally didn't expect for it to come out pink either, but that's the great thing about juicing—the experimentation is the best part.
If I were to make this one again in the future, I might consider removing the skin from the apple (which is what I think is turning it pink). Then again, there is beauty in imperfection! Plus, apple skins have important nutrients you don't want to miss.
I am all for playing around with your juicer—and your food in general. There is no wrong way to play with your food, and despite the color, you won't feel like the mango in this one is missing. It adds a tropical richness to your juice and goes really well with the hint of mint and lemon.
Mango Madness Juice RecipeBe sure to remove the peel of the lemon and mango before juicing. The oils in the skin can really harm your juicer and make your juice bitter. The membranes will be fine, but remove the peel (and any large, hard seeds) to be safe. A healthy juicer makes happy juice!

1. Turn your juicer to high speed. Slowly insert all ingredients through the chute. Don’t worry about the seeds in your apple. The juicer will take care of it for you! Turn off the juicer after all ingredients have passed through the machine.
2. Drink immediately on ice, or store in sealed mason jars for up to 24 hours.
